About

Ward’s project Intangible Knots focuses on hairs hidden qualities, by incorporating cameraless and digital photographic techniques, in order to initiate a relationship with hair which never existed whilst she was maturing.

 

The objectification of hair through subtraction and its physical manipulation allows for the creation of unusual and intriguing shapes. Ward enjoys being open about her relationship with hair and while challenging immediate perceptions her work persuades the viewer to engage with this subject and delve deeper through observative methods.

 

Ward’s work is a personal journey and subject of her life of how a relationship with hair was never fully maintained. Moreover, Intangible Knots investigates the social and cultural perception of hair perceived and forces us to consider why our relationship with hair is so important.
